Baranyi describes the concept of ‘yesterday’ in the language of the Eora. On 29 April 1770 the Endeavour sailed into Kamay (Botany Bay) and the lives of Australia’s First Nations Peoples changed forever.
This video shows us the night sky as it was seen from Kamay on the evening of 28 April 1770 – the last night sky before contact.
The video reference uses technology that enables us to move through time and space – showing us where we have come from, helping us understand the impact of our footprints on Country.
This activity is designed to help learners understand that people experience and connect to events in diverse but no less significant ways.
